    Need more Daryl air time.

    As for the rest of it. Andrea is a wimp. She should have done it. Even though the Gov was awake and waiting. Now he knows she might.

    There were some good lines, but I can't remember them. I need to rewatch.

    Thought another SLOW episode. Meh. Didn't care much for it.

    Next week previews look fun. I prefer the episodes that have SOME threat involved during it. Humans or Zombies.

    I'm not sure we know if the Gov was awake or not. Sure, it's possible and even likely, but there wasn't any indication that he actually was awake.

    But I knew she would never do it. She was stupid to get up and realize that with a knife in her hand.. she should have just reasoned it out while still in bed.

    He did take her back pretty quickly, so I think that was a trap and he knows what she might be being put up to.

    Also, why give her the car to go back? Why didn't one of them just drive her there, drop her off a few hundred yards away (she can walk the rest of the way), and return to the prison with the car? Stupid.

    Then again, this is television, and that kind of inner conflict is not something that can be shown. They probably did about as good a job of portraying her inner conflict as they could have.

    The good news is, it doesn't make her look any more stupid than she already was. It's kind of miraculous that she's already the dumbest character on the show, considering that counts about a million zombies... :D

    I thought there was a second when he opened his one eye.

    Also why don't so many viewers get the concept of a mirror? They were jumping on the thought that the Gov was trying to burn the wrong eye when in fact he was looking in a mirror. I mean jeesh, who just puts a match up to your eye without looking!

    But I think they could have showed that inner conflict without the risk of revealing the plot to Gov (if he was awake). Maybe she goes into the bathroom to get a knife, contemplates it, and then puts it back, out of ear/eye shot of the Gov. She is pretty stupid, though.

    They had her get out of the bed and get the knife just so they could film her naked. :)

    Also, is that the the most lines Michonne has had?

    Yeah you think they would just lure them off to the side and can just stab them. Make it Merle's job

    My wife and I discussed this.

    Best theory: As they kill them along the fence, the bodies begin to pile and create a climbable mound. Someone would therefore either need to go out and clean them off on a regular basis or clean them when they pile up, both of which is dangerous to do.

    I got the impression they were worried about snipers in the woods.

    I seriously doubt that was her; more likely a body double.

    Yeah, that's probably the biggest thing

    But that is only a recent thing

    There aren't that many of them. I know it's not pivotal to the show, but it just drives me crazy. That area could be cleaned and reclaimed within a couple of hours.

    I do agree about being concerned with snipers, though that is a recent concern.

    I kept thinking he was going to grab her wrist any second as she's standing there. But if she did it then they could get rid of Martinez and a few other nut cases and everyone could live happily ever after in the town together--show over. So I didn't think she would.

    Didn't they show the Gov popping pills? Between that and the booze he may have been knocked out pretty good. I'm not sure he cares if he lives or dies any more--look at how he stood in the open when they attacked the prison. He'd probably die happy if he could kill Michonne and Rick.

    I didn't see anything to indicate the Gov knew Andrea was there.

    I really want to FF through everything that happens at Woodbury. I don't care about the people there or what happens there. Snoozer.

    The stuff at the prison was pretty good though. I liked the reunion with Andrea. She thought she'd be welcome with open arms and I think was taken aback that they were so harsh with her at the start. What did she expect, she's literally sleeping with the enemy.

    At the end when Andrea went back to the Gov, I think she really believes she does belong there. She saw how they were living at the prison. She doesn't want to live like that. She's willing to sacrifice her ethics and let the Gov do what he wants for the comfort of that life. She'll posture about it, but when push comes to shove, she won't stop him.

    I obviously missed the end somehow.... I saw Andrea drive off, but never saw her back in the town.

    I hope I still have the recording and can go back and see what I missed.
